Denied, Detained, Deported: Stories from the Dark Side of American Immigration

Ann Bausum has written several excellent non-fiction books published by National Geographic, all of which meet my "compulsively readable" requirement. I highlight this one because it's such a controversial topic right now, and one that directly affects some of my students. In this book about U.S. immigration policies, Bausum focuses on cases that aren't often discussed in history classes, cases that reveal the shameful side of immigration. Bausum addressed the economic impact of new immigrants, as well as issues like racism and national security. A very well-balanced historical perspective on a current event, it would be an excellent choice as the basis for a collaborative between history and language arts teachers. Highly recommended for grades 7 and up.

I run a middle school library, in the golden age of children's and young adult books! There is not enough time in the day to read all of them, but I will share what I can.
